Hummus-stuffed chicken breasts

Serves 4

1/2 cup hummus

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1 cup all-purpose flour

4 large eggs, egg whites only

1 tablespoon water

1 1/2 cups breadcrumbs or Panko

Salt and pepper to taste

1/4 cup olive oil

Place chicken in a large plastic bag and pound until 1/4 inch thick, about 8 inches long and 6 inches wide.

Lay the chicken breasts smooth side down and season with salt and pepper. Spread about 2 tablespoons of hummus on the chicken, leaving a 1/2-inch border all around.

Roll each chicken breast and wrap in aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Twist the ends like a candy wrapper and chill in the refrigerator for 45 minutes.

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Using three shallow dishes, pour the flour in one, lightly whisk the egg whites and water in the second and place the breadcrumbs in the third. Unwrap the chicken breasts and, using tongs, roll in the flour, submerge in the egg whites, and then place in the breadcrumbs, using your fingers to press the breadcrumbs so they stick.

Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large nonstick skillet until shimmering (about 4 minutes). Place the rolled chicken breasts in the oil, seam side down. Cook until golden, about 2 minutes on all sides. Put the chicken breasts (seam side down) in a baking dish and cook in an oven for about 15 minutes or until thermometer registers 160 degrees. Remove from oven and let sit for 5 minutes.
